The following weekend, I added in some rough made jamb extensions to the inside of the window frame. After all, my bars would need to clear the window hardware. I mounted my security bars with a set of galvanized utility hinges, set at the bottom rail of the bar frame. To give the whole thing a little extra strength, I added a pair of corner braces also at the bottom.  With the bars folded down, I put a ¼” notch at the bottom of each window pane, so that the window could clear the bar’s hinges without issue.

Concerning the $0 DIY Security Bars–I see the weakest link in the whole project. While the construction of the bars is solid, the attachment of the bars to the window frame is not. It is held on by wood screws. I would think that a burglar could open the window, then kick in the frame. The only thing working against the frame being kicked in, is the short-length wood screws. I would suggest that holes be drilled through the window frame, and bolts passed through the entire depth of the frame, from the outside, with double nuts on the inside.

Agreed; there is much more protection than existed before. Anything to stop a burglar is great. I was searching for window protection bars, which is how I found your site. The bars sold in Home Depot seem to be mounted without much strength. I have fashioned bars across the outside of the window, bolted through the frame. One must always think like a burglar.

Instead, I decided to fill my “bars” with expanding spray foam. While I’ll admit not super easy, I think I was successful enough. I filled one end of each pipe using a delicate gun hand, and assembled that one end into the holes I drilled. Then flipping my bars (and half assembled frame) up on its side, I worked to fill the rest of the bars.

I removed my temporary ply, I glazed the window repair and painted all 12 sides of the window. I secured it at the top on one side with a “locking” barrel bolt. On the other side with a hasp and a spare padlock. While I haven’t yet, I plan to add in nylon spacers, so the bars will sit tighter against the window.

Now, I had already worked on getting this window in place. It is a wood window; in fact, all the windows in the house remained wood. I always particularly liked this particular window, because it is, idk … unique. Two 2-foot panes hinged both at the frame and at the meeting stile in the center.  I always figured this window served some practical purpose in the distant past. Coal?  idk.

What I did have was a bunch of ¾” rigid (metal) electrical conduit. While I considered running the bars vertically, I decided to save a little effort by running them horizontally, for a total of five bars at about 40” each or 1 and ¾ of two 10’ sticks of electrical conduit. I cut them to length on my chop saw.

Here is an idea that I used to secure all my jalousie glass louver windows using 5/8″ metal conduit, 1/4 x 1 1/4″ bolts, & 1/4″ self locking nuts. Cut the conduits to the length of the frame, smash both ends, then drill the holes through the center of the frame and smashed end and secure bolt with self locking nut on the inside. Line up the bar between the 2nd & third jalousie from the bottom in the closed position. Each bar has two jalousies between them. It is almost invisible if done between the screen and glass. I use seven bars per window because I want the top open in case of a fire. Please call 808 456-2189 if you have any questions.

Obviously, they prevent easy entrance into your home. But a large part of their effectiveness is psychological: Burglars prefer to work quickly, quietly, and they don’t like complications. Simply the sight of burglar bars is enough to discourage most home invaders.

With the patio project going, I figured it was time to at least begin addressing some of the loose items in the immediate vicinity of it. One item in particular, a hinged basement window that had unfortunately been broken during, well, a break-in. Yep, it happened for us just after Christmas last year. In other words, Security was a concern.

We (Mrs. Moxie & I) discussed briefly the idea of installing glass block in the opening, as that would surely secure things. But really, I wasn’t cool with it. I still liked the idea of being able to open that window. I may add a foundation fan one day and this window does already do wonders for air circulation down there.
